In this production I try to produce an ‘explainer’ style video, with the aim of informing a general audience about a product known as The Pēpi-Pod. This is a safe sleep device, aimed at reducing sudden infant death syndrome in infants from vulnerable families in our society. The program associated with this device empowers indigenous families, primarily mothers, with invaluable information that they themselves can disseminate into their own communities for a brighter future. It was a pleasure to explore this topic, and to learn more about the hardships many indigenous families face in this country. I feel like this work helped develop my storytelling skills, whilst clearly emphasising the aspects of video production that I need to develop further to create more cohesive, entertaining media artifacts in the future.
